Tim Atkin MW’s weekly Observer wine column, which has a large following, is to be slashed to a shopping list. Atkin’s contribution will be reduced to recommending three wines a week, although he will continue to have a presence in the Observer Food Monthly. Atkin started his column in the Observer in September 1993, having previously written a weekly column for the Guardian, the Observer’s sister paper since April 1989.
Here are the email details for anyone wishing to contact either Tim Lewis (editor of the Observer Magazine: email@example.com) – and John Mullholland (editor of the Observer: firstname.lastname@example.org) about this very regrettable and short-sighted decision.
